Online dating just got even worse…
With the advent of Tinder spreading like a silent insidious force, it’s no wonder online dating has become such a horrible mess. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about weird experiences women have had on the dating app, including a harrowing tale about a man who asked his Tinder date to refund the money he spent on her coffee after being turned down for a second date. #facepalm
However, that doesn’t stop a few Tinder incidents from making us chuckle over our morning lattes. After all, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. Here are 17 examples of Tinder gone horribly wrong…
1. The Billy Joel enthusiast
Um…how exactly did he manage to rope Billy Joel into this?!
2.The bleeding obvious
Probably one of the best sarcastic responses in the history of Tinder.
3. The literature lover
This is literally one of the oldest (and most disturbing) lines in the book. Originality, if you please?
4. The half-baked Shakespearean
He was doing so well until the last five words…
5. Mr. Old-School
Look out, Borat’s on the loose.
6. The wannabe grizzly
I’m not sure pretending to be a fearsome, growling, salivating wild animal ever won the heart of a fair maiden. Still, you never know.
7. The salad lover
How does anyone even think of this?!
8. The unassuming artist
Well, at least he’s trying to be romantic. Pity he’s failing miserably.
9. The metaphor king
Kudos to this girl for the best comeback ever, and props to this guy for admitting defeat.
10. Dessert obsessed
This actually might not be so bad if you like that sort of thing.
11. The mathematician
And people say the Oedipus complex is outdated…
12. The walking TV commercial
When was the last time they even played that irritating commercial? At least pick something with a better theme song.
13. The online aficionado
This guy clearly has too much time on his hands. I mean, who ever looks at the second page of a Google search anyway?
14. The cub
As a self-confessed puma, I can assure you this is not the way to proposition an older woman. Tact, anyone?
15. The guy who’s out of pickup lines
I literally have no words for this one.
16. The real straight shooter
While this line smacks of cliche, at least he’s upfront. Gross, but honest.
17. The messed up hockey fan
Again, he was doing really well up until the last sentence. He’s lucky this girl doesn’t come after him wielding a hockey stick. When will these guys learn?!
